Overweight Human Snowwoman

I’m heading to the Windy City today and I must admit, I’m a little nervous. You see, I’m a Southern girl and do not deal well with cold weather. To me, 50 degrees is about the coldest I can handle.

Below is the predicted weather report from www.weather.com while I will be there:

Dec 6 Today
Occasional snow flurries developing. Morning high of 37F with temps falling to near 30F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph.

Dec 6 Tonight
Snow flurries this evening will give way to partly cloudy skies during the night. Cold. Low 13F. Winds NW at 15 to 25 mph.

Dec 7 Tomorrow
Partly cloudy skies with gusty winds. Colder. High 16F. Winds NW at 20 to 30 mph.

Dec 7 Tomorrow night
Clear skies. Cold. Low 11F. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.

Dec 8 Friday
A few clouds. Highs in the upper 20s and lows in the low 20s.

Dec 9 Saturday
Mainly sunny and windy. Highs in the upper 30s and lows in the upper 20s.

A low of 13 degrees!!! Is that humanly possible? Anyways, I’ve already resigned myself to the fact that I will be looking a ridiculous fool, all bundled up in my winter clothing. Women from Chicago look adorable with their stylish yet functional winter clothing while I basically pile on as many clothes as possible onto my 5’3” frame. Think obese human snowman or should I say, snowwoman.

If anybody has any recommendations for things to do or see, I would love to hear them. I’m also a foodie so if you’ve got any restaurant recommendations, I’d really appreciate it!

Talk to you guys on Monday!
